Soul Not On Ice: Hugo Chavez's body may have decayed too much for eternal display

Mr. Chavez died at the age of 58 last week from a heart attack

suffered during cancer recovery, various media reported. His body was placed in a glass coffin and on display at Caracas. The plan was to keep him on permanent display — “for eternity.” -- Washington Times
Humm. Here's a concept for those that need to hide a death for a month or so until they can get a new boss in place: refrigeration.

Your Say

I think they should salvage what they can, and send the various bodyparts to Sean Penn, Joe Kennedy Jr., and any other preening, rich asshats who worshipped that cruel clown.

Considering the fact that lard melts soon after death, I would think the display would have to be a kiddie-pool.

Preferably one with happy little animals embossed on its sides.

Not surprising. Like Crabby Appleton, Hugo was rotten to the core.

It's a shame that he won't keep
But it's summer and we're runnin' out of ice"

Hard to hide the bruises resulting from repeatedly seeking an answer to the question "Where's the MONEY, you bastard?!"
